With an eye toward empowering and inspiring kids, Chelsea Clinton explores some of the biggest challenges facing our world today. Using data, charts and stories she unpacks challenges related to Poverty, Climate Change, Gender Equality, Health, Endangered Species and talks about what's being done to make a difference in each area--particularly by kids and teenagers. You can make a difference. You can make a change. It’s your world.

An elderly African American woman, en route to vote, remembers her family’s tumultuous voting history in this picture book publishing in time for the fiftieth anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. As Lillian, a one-hundred-year-old African American woman, makes a “long haul up a steep hill” to her polling place, she sees more than trees and sky—she sees her family’s history. She sees the passage of the Fifteenth Amendment and her great-grandfather voting for the first time.

Civic Engagement- We learn how to make a difference in our communities, and develop skills, values, and motivation to make that difference.


To inspire our independent book lovers (ages 9-12), we will read It's Your World & Lillian's Right to Vote.


Think about what you could do to make a difference. Ask the adults in your family if they are registered to vote. Then tell them why it is important to do so based on what you learned from 'Lillian's Right to Vote'.
